1 Killed, 2 Injured on Set of New Scorsese Film 'Silence'


A building being maintained for background scenes in Scorese's next film 'Silence' collapsed in Taiwan, injuring 2 studio construction workers and killing 1. The production company had been worried about the integrity of the structure and had hired the construction team to assess its strength when it fell.

The film's publicist Leslee Dart expressed her condolences, stating, "Everyone is in shock and sorrow, and expresses their deepest concern and sympathy to the families of the individual who died and those who were injured".

Could Drake and Madonna be working on a track for his next #1 album?



Drizzy posted this picture on his Instagram this morning with the caption "I wanna ride with you". Could it be that the two are working together? It wouldn't be much of a surprise if this collaboration were to actually happen. For her most recent album, Madonna collaborated with Nas & Chance the Rapper.

Mary Cheney Wants To Know Why Drag Is OK but Blackface Is Not


Direct quote from her facebook:

"Why is it socially acceptable -- as a form of entertainment -- for men to put on dresses, make up and high heels and act out every offensive stereotype of women (bitchy, catty, dumb, slutty, etc.) -- but it is not socially acceptable -- as a form of entertainment -- for a white person to put on blackface and act out offensive stereotypes of African Americans? Shouldn't both be okay or neither? Why does society treat these activities so differently?"

Apparently an ad for RuPaul's Drag Race sparked the conundrum for her.

ONTD Original: Band Drama That Time Forgot

In the midst of this juicy blink-182 break-up, I started thinking about all of the band drama I lived through and invested my possibly-somewhat-emo/scene teen years invested in. I saw someone in one of the posts suggested an ONTD Original featured said band drama, so here it is.


It's only fair to start this off with one of the most iconic band dramas of all time in the emo music scene: Brand New vs Taking Back Sunday. This one arguably started many of the band dramas to come. Of course, it all started with a girl. Jesse Lacey's (Brand New) girlfriend cheated on him with his childhood friend, John Nolan (TBS, Straylight Run). Many a songs were penned, including Seventy Times 7 and The Shower Scene by Lacey, and Timberwolves At New Jersey and There's No I In Team by Nolan.

I realise there is a bunch of drama I forgot/didn't include, but this post could go on forever if I added in everything. (Jonny Craig, Pete's nudes, P!ATD etc etc) Feel free to add your favourite ~band dramaz in the comments!

Author of The Thorn Birds, Colleen McCullough, dead at 77




Before Twilight, before Fifty Shades of Grey, there was.... the dubious mess that was/is The Thorn Birds.

The OG of messy, and I do mean MESSY romantic bestsellers, Colleen McCollough passed away on Thursday in hospital on Norfolk Island. She was 77 years old.

The Thorn Birds was made into a miniseries starring Richard Chamberlain in 1983. TV Guide describes it as follows: "A priest is torn between his calling and the lure of a rancher's daughter in this sumptuous epic set in the Australian Outback from 1920 through '62. Miniseries king Richard Chamberlain is in peak form as ambitious Father Ralph, whose turbulent, enduring romance with beautiful Meggie Cleary resulted in the second highest-rated miniseries ever (after `Roots'). This adaptation of Colleen McCullough's novel also earned Emmys for Barbara Stanwyck, Richard Kiley and Jean Simmons."

McCullough was also a qualified and trained neurophysiologist and worked at hospitals in Australia, Britain and the Unitied States (Yale Medical School, Connecticut).

RIP.

Ten things from the Backstreet Boys documentary that might surprise you


So you might have heard that the Backstreet Boys documentary Show 'Em What You're Made Of released yesterday in theatres and on VOD. If you haven't? Hey that's okay too. While there was a time when they were the biggest group in the world just suddenly one day they weren't. So while many Backstreet fans are collectively on a bit of a high right now from the release of the film a good portion of the general public hasn't even bat an eye and there's a good chance that you're one of them. If you are maybe you should reconsider.

Show 'Em What You're Made Of is a surprisingly good film. Honestly. Even when you look at it objectively, silencing that hysterical shrieking and sobbing obsessively TRL voting inner tween/teenager it's a solid documentary. The stereotypical "You'll laugh! You'll cry!" actually rings true with this film in part because of how honest they are. It doesn't always paint them in a good light - personally one of the many things going through my mind after my initial viewing was "Fuck Nick Carter" - and it doesn't shy away from things like their manufactured start, legal issues with Lou Pearlman, internal band conflicts and how they aren't the same group they once were.

So anyway long story short I put together this list of some, but not nearly all, of the highlights from the doc. Enjoy and KTBSPA.


Howie was originally the group's lead singer
This one is a bit of a cheat because it isn't some kind of revelation or secret to a lot of people who are big fans of the group. After some discussions about vocals in the Backstreet Boys posts from yesterday I figured I would include this since I guessed that some casual fans and ONTD members in general might not know this. When the group was initially formed Howie was actually the lead vocalist. This shifted slightly when Kevin suggested that his cousin Brian join the group but Howie was still pretty much in the foreground. Check out this promo video from 1993 for a hint of BSB's original sound.

Mariah Carey returns to Sony Music under L.A. Reid



Just months shy of the 10-year anniversary of The Emancipation Of Mimi, Mariah Carey and L.A. Reid are prepping another kind of comeback. The newly-emancipated chanteuse is returning to Sony Music through Epic Records, where Reid has served as chairman since 2011. The seven albums Mariah has released through Sony have sold a combined 43.9 million albums, including the septuple-platinum Music Box and Daydream.

The multi-album deal will see Carey's first new material through Sony since 1999's Rainbow. Mariah is set to begin with a greatest-hits album to coincide with her upcoming residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Dubbed "#1's", the concert series begins May 6 and will include all 18 of Carey's Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers.

Despite the messiness that has been Mariah's career in recent years, we can take hope in that she ended 2014 on a positive note, selling out a six-night residency at New York's Beacon Theatre that grossed a combined $1.5 million. Here's to 2015 and Mariah's chance at scoring her third consecutive Song of the Decade.

Abbey Lee Joins Elle Fanning in Nicolas Winding Refn's "The Neon Demon"

Former super model Abbey Lee (née Kerhsaw) has been announced to star in Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn's upcoming horror film - The Neon Demon - alongside Elle Fanning.

Abbey Lee will play Sarah, "a cool ringleader that other girls want to follow. Envious, emotionally unstable and a tad delusional, she shows her true maniacal colors in the end. After first creeping Jesse out by sucking the blood out of her wound, she ends up killing and later eating Jesse to absorb her virginal youth and beauty."

Elle Fanning plays a currently unnamed role (maybe 'Jesse'?) described as “an aspiring model who is caught in a world of beauty and demise.”

Of the film, Refn previously said "One morning I woke and realized I was both surrounded and dominated by women. Strangely, a sudden urge was planted in me to make a horror film about vicious beauty. After making Drive and falling madly in love with the electricity of Los Angeles, I knew I had to return to tell the story of The Neon Demon. This movie is a manifestation of the strong ties between us and will lead to many more adventures."

Did Disney stop 'Tomorrowland' lead Britt Robertson from promoting ~racy~ indie movie?



CultureCatch spoke with the director of Ask Me Anything, where Robertson plays a young, promiscuous blogger, and he seems to think so.

Why go AWOL?

AB: The short answer is "I have not the faintest idea." Here's the long answer. When Britt saw the completed movie for the first time, she wrote me an email. She said that she had never been more proud of anything she had ever done and that she would do anything to help promote the film. She was, to put it mildly, over the moon. We sold the film to the first distributor who saw it. Naturally, Britt's total commitment to promoting the movie was intrinsic to the deal. But something had occurred between the time I gave her the role and the movie's moving toward its release: Britt had landed the leads in two giant movies -- Disney's Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney, and the new Nicholas Sparks film, The Longest Ride.

Big Sean's album cover + tracklist + new song with Drake where he raps about Ariana's cooch

big-sean-dsp

Big Sean just unveiled the cover art and tracklisting for his third album Dark Sky Paradise. The deluxe version of the album will have 15 tracks featuring many people from Ariana Grande, Kanye West and Chris Brown to Lil Wayne, Jhené Aiko, John Legend.

The first song he released from this album is "Blessing" featuring Drake. In one of the verse, Big Sean raps: “Man, the click is the tightest, the pussy’s the tightest,” and since he’s dating Ariana, it's easy to guess whose pussy he's rapping about. In the same verse, he mentions his "old girl" who was mad at him which has to be Naya Rivera.

The album comes out on February 24.

Larry Wilmore Explains Why He Was So Comfortable Calling Out Bill Cosby

larry

A lot of us were pleasantly surprised when The Nightly Show host Larry Wilmore used his second episode to weigh in on the Bill Cosby rape allegations.  "That motherfucker did it," Wilmore, a black man in comedy, said about Cosby, another black man in comedy.

That kind of realness was like Judd Apatow calling out Woody Allen -- except it actually happened! Well, it seems Wilmore didn't hesitate to add to the "destruction of Cosby's legacy" because he's never been a big fan of the arrogant Ghost Dad star.

"He was never a hero of mine," explained to THR. "I liked Cosby, but I have a different relationship with him than a lot of people because I didn't grow up on The Cosby Show. I grew up on I Spy and Chet Kincaid. I remember in the late '70s, early '80s, my mom met Bill Cosby down in San Diego at this tennis tournament. She came back and said, 'We asked him for his autograph, and he was so mean, so nasty. He said, 'I don't do that.' 'I was like, 'Man, what an asshole.' My opinion of Cosby at that point was like, 'What a jerk.' I never even watched The Cosby Show. I always thought, 'That's great that that show is on,' but about him I was like, 'Whatever, Cosby.' Richard Pryor was my hero. Richard Pryor was keeping it 100."

2015's Best Actor Noms Hug it Out Romcom-style: An ONTD Original

~ONTD Original:  Early Romcoms of 2015 Oscar Nominees~


Untitled 3

Everyone starts somewhere, and if you're an attractive actor who entered Hollywood in the late 90's - 00's, you probably made a romantic comedy.  These romantic comedies were not meant to be masterpieces but they were pleasant diversions before Hollywood got so CGI & franchise heavy.  This year's Academy Award nominated actors and actresses starred in some heavy shit in 2014, so let's take a look back at their earlier fluffier fare, shall we?
